Mets Lose to Braves 2-0
The Mets saw their three-game winning streak snapped Saturday in Atlanta, going down 2-0.
The Braves scored a first inning run on a Martin Prado double, a wild pitch by Chris Young and a ground out.
Prado doubled again in the fifth, this time with a runner on second to give the Braves a 2-0 lead.
Braves starter Mike Minor stymied the Mets. He was lifted with one out in the seventh following a David Wright ground rule double. It was only the third hit Minor allowed. Wright moved to third on a balk with two outs but Lucas Duda struck out to end the inning.
Young pitched well, going six innings, allowing the two runs on seven hits with just one walk and six strikeouts. He finishes the season with a record of 4-9 with a 4.15 ERA in 20 starts. It was likely his last appearance in a Mets uniform — I would be stunned if he was back in 2013. The couple of million dollars it would cost to resign him would be better spent elsewhere.
The Mets threatened in the ninth against Craig Kimbrel. Ruben Tejada reached base on an error, and with one out Wright was hit by a pitch. But pinch hitter Ike Davis struck out, and so did Duda, and that was that.
Mets lose 2-0.
